Things To Do Before I Turn 50

  (also known as my "TA-DA" list as opposed to a "to do" list) It was my 49th birthday a few days ago and this got me thinking. Any birthday that ends with a zero always feels a bit like milestone or a landmark and, when I hit the big "five-o" in 2022, I don't want huge parties or celebrations but I would like to have ticked a few things off my low-effort bucket list.   I see these things as a way to improve my mental and physical health, plus a few slightly off-the-wall experiences that would make for great memories.  Start running again and include the following: Lead a C25K group again  Participate in parkrun EVERY week where possible  < ongoing (now parkrun Run Director too) Visit local landmarks whilst running  Train for a long race - building up from 5k > 10k > 10 miles > half marathon, with a couple of longer trail races mixed in  Lose a lot bit of weight Post more on Instagram or give the blog a bit of a reboot < ongoing Look at

Listography : Top 5 Keyword Searches

This week Listography is back over at KateTakes5's blog and she wants to know about the top 5 keyword searches on our blogs.  My top five are really boring.  Honestly, you don't want to know what they are.  You'll say, "Really, Nickie?  That's yawnsome!"

So here are some of the more interesting ones:

  • a pennis [sic] of a male inside the vagina of a woman
  • why women get drunk faster "alcohol"
  • answering the door safely 
  • male sexual tattoos
  • wizard of oz adult scarecrow full body

I have tried googling each of these search terms and can't find how someone has arrived on my blog using any of them!  I mean, I've never, ever written about the Wizard of Oz and why would I have a diagram of a willy inside a fanny on my blog, for fucks sake?

What's that?  You still want to know what the real top five are?  Well don't say I didn't warn you...

*shakes shoulder* Wake up... WAKE UP!!!
